Porcelain Legionnaire Discussion

Porcelain Legionnaire Would be king in this deck as a 2 of. With tempered steel out it eats tasigur, angler, goyf and most other threats in the format. For "2" mana.

Smuggler's Copter is pretty risky in this deck. You aren't casting madness and nothing has flashback to really make it effective. I would exchange it and Reckless Bushwhacker for 4 Cranial Plating and 4 Puresteel Paladin. Then I would cut Springleaf Drum and Welding Jar completely and drop in another Court Homunculus. I would consider exchanging Toolcraft Exemplar for Porcelain Legionnaire too. Too often, decks will control you and Toolcraft Exemplar won't be much more than an annoyance. At least legionnaire has no strings attached and can be cast for two mana and . Hope that helps.

You need the artifacts to ramp and keep up.


Porcelain Legionnaire he doesn't do anything for you in this list

Chief Engineer: you aren't playing enough artifcats

Puresteel Paladin: again, not enough to utilize him

Stonehewer Giant: ditto

Trinket Mage: ditto

Steel Hellkite: you have better options in what I gave you

Wall of Denial: eh.

Skullclamp: I don't even know if this is legal, keep it if you add elspeth and other stuff that will allow you to utilize it

Cloudshift: kind of meh

ManaDrain: CAN YOU SRSLY AFFORD THIS--replace with Counterspell

Mana Leak: TERRIBLE IN EDH use Cryptic Command/Counterspell

Safe Passage: Maybe use Declaration in Stone or Cyclonic Rift I am drawing blanks on cards that would achieve the same but are a bit more diverse.

Path to Exile: Swords to Plowsharesm POE is not as good in edh

War Report: drop it--Swan Song

Gitaxian Probe: Brainstorm

Survival Cache: not as good

These are the one's staring me in the face

Personally, I think this deck should run some cheap equipment. A couple Infiltration Lens will make the game much easier for you since you will most likely be chump blocked often. Mask of Avacyn is a cheap way to boost a lord and give it hexproof.

If you run more lifelink you could consider some Porcelain Legionnaire

Hmm... have you tested it? Seems to me like you're making a voltron on Sram but you're not having enough punch. Protection seems ok, I would replace Explorer's Scope with Lightning Greaves.

I can't quite give you more "Replace this" advice, but I would suggest to consider the following somewhere Spirit Mantle, Oblation, Island Sanctuary, Porcelain Legionnaire, Ancient Den, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Darksteel Citadel and Asha's Favor.

1st Turn- Student of Warfareis a decent card at first, but when you level it up the card becomes insane a two mana 3/3 with first strike and so on!

2nd Turn- Student of Warfare or a Crusade which makes your current Student a 2/2 as it is a white creature. I don't know how good that is in your meta, but it seems pretty good in mine. You can also cast Thalia, Guardian of Thrabenor Porcelain Legionnaire. I can understand that some players might not understand Porcelain Legionnaire, so I will explain it the best I can. So what you can do is cast him for two mana of any color or colorless mana and then take off two life from your life total- so if you were at 20 you would be at 18 now- or you can spend a Plains land-only a Plains land- and cast him. Thus in that case, he would cost two mana of any color or colorless mana and a Plains land mana making a total of 3 mana. With that all said his symbol is called Phyrexian , this means that his symbol does not count for the Devotion you have in getting Heliod to turn into a creature.

3rd Turn- Okay now you might be scared of what he has on the board. In this case, you use Banishing Light this turn because it is a sorcery, and you cannot play it on his turn. I would recommend to save Banishing Light for things that are not creatures, as this deck does have better removal such as Path to Exile. Unless in the case of hexproof, where you will have to RNG your way into Celestial Flareand hope that he only attacks with only that creature or blocks with only that creature.

3rd Turn (The who cares you will win anyways mentality)- Honestly this is what I do most of the time- I wouldn't recommend it, if you are playing with better players and know that they will counter whatever you do. Play Mirran Crusader, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Hidden Dragonslayer for his 3 cost, Always Watching , Thalia, Heretic Cathar, or any of the Swords depending on which situation. Okay so if you played Mirran Crusader, you would maybe attack with one Student of Warfare. Hidden Dragonslayer is a complete beast when used properly, he plays as three mana 2/2 creature face down- this means that the color is not established and the player does not know what the card is as you just have to say it is a 2/2 creature. Therefore in first encounter games you can really trip up your opponent, anytime you want-yes it is an instant metamorph isn't that just insane- you can flip it over and turn it into a 3/2 Human Warrior with Lifelink and destroy a creature with power 4 or greater. I wouldn't recommend trying to use the metamorph ability on a God as it is indestructible, however gods can still die through -X/-X counters, exile, discard, and so on. Always Watching is the card that allows you to attack with all your non-token creatures. If you placed a Sword then all you would do is attack like you do with Mirran Crusader, as the cost of the equip is still two and you would not have enough mana that turn.

4th Turn- Okay most of these plays are pretty good if you played Elspeth, Knight-Errant I would consider doing the second ability where your creature gets +3/3( looks to be forever) and also flying( this is until end for turn) and then putting that +3/3 onto Mirran Crusader which allows you to attack in the air (only creatures with flying or reach, and are not black, green or both can block), thus without any blocks you will deal 10 damage to the opponent because of double strike( the creature attacks with first strike and then again).Heliod, God of the Sunis just great, when you haven't gotten Always Watching out or Always Watching has been exiled, destroyed, etc. Secure the Wastes( Instant), also gets you 3 white warrior tokens on your turn or enemy turn, I would suggest enemy's turn as you can't attack with them this turn anyways.

Beyond 4th Turn you can do pretty much anything- they should be either dead or close to dead by this tho.

(SIDENOTE- When a Planeswalker is on the field you are unable to counter his abilities. For instance,use the +whatever ability from your planeswalker, he cannot at that moment say I want to kill your planeswalker to counter that ability. The ability will still go through and then he can kill your planeswalker, ultimately achieving nothing but stopping what you might do with your planeswalker next turn)

Vault Skirge is really good when you can pump him but in this deck almost all the creatures pump themselves and the one large pump we run Edge of the Divinity is a little sub par with skirge (almost all creatures can be got out of bolt range instant speed) i do like the suggestion, i also looked at Porcelain Legionnaire when i was planning the deck.

Can you check if the second deck is marked as private?

Anyway, for the artifact build, Porcelain Legionnaire and Tempered Steel are some cards I've had fun with before.
